Rats were taught a conditioned taste aversion by allowing them to drink sucrose (CS) for 5 min and 30 min later poisoning them with LiCl (UCS). Experimental animals were given ECS (80 mA for 250 msec) at 0, 15, 20, 25, 27.5, 30, 32.5, 35, 40, or 45 min after the CS. Only animals given ECS both within the CS-UCS interval and in close temporal proximity to the UCS (within 5 min) showed a significant, although limited, disruption of learning. At least two explanations are possible. The first is… CONTINUE READING
